    There is a Community Chest card in Monopoly that says "Bank error in your favor - collect $50". Would you also try to return this money?

    What about the "Kent Wang dropped his wallet" error? Does one have any obligation to return that money?

    on a similar note but somewhat off topic, i purchased a pair of jeans off active endeavors at 20% off. i returned them and was refunded the price of the jeans without the 20% off. i called them up and told them about the mistake and let them know that they could debit my card for the difference but they said it was their mistake and that they wouldn't be doing anything. for a $180 pair of jeans, it was not a small amount (although maybe for them it was).

    anyway, i did think that was cool of them and i do try to buy from them any chance i get.

    damn...on a similar note...this thread just reminded me of three pairs of Patagonia thermals that was sent to me twice. i need to return the second set back to Moosejaw...

    Similarly, in a shipping mixup an STP shipment showed delivered on their tracking site for many days, and I had not received it. Called their customer service who said they woudl credit it back to me. I asked who I should call if I get it in order to put the proper charge back on, and was told, "hey, if you get it, you get it, don't worry about it, sorry about the mixup." After seeking an explanation on that I was indeed told, if you get it you can keep it. Translation, free suit.

    [Which I incidentally spent too much to have tailored, and have not worn in the 8 months since I got it. One of these days I will measure it and put it up for sale for the cost of the tailoring, see if I can get my $ back.]

    Personally, I'd rather have the "Get Out Of Jail Free" card.

    That is totally irrational. The get out of jail free card is worth at most $50. Probably only worth something like $42.


    The $50 will get you out of jail "free," but is also more liquid. Think about it, man.

    (Isn't the monopoly card for $200, incidentally?)

    Well, the premise seemed to be that we were importing these cards into real life. $50 won't even get in you in the bail bondsman's door, much less put a dent in my hourly rate.
    Looked at from a different perspective, I can guarantee you that if you had a "GOOJF" card, I could hook you up with somebody - for example, a guy whose name rhymes with "Def Illing" - who'd pay you a lot more than $200 for it.

    When I got the email is was said they where crediting my account. I called and they said they could give a refund on my credit card.

    I am a bit annoyed by the whole experience as I did like the shoes and when I tried them on in the store in the correct size they fit really well and felt great"”and at only $80 each! When I spoke to them on the phone I tried to make it clear to them that they need to fix the way they resize from US to UK sizes"”to go a full size down and not a half size.

    If that's how you interpreted the original comment, you're forgiven, dad. [​IMG]

    If you ask a question like this in public, of course the response is "You must return the money." By asking such a question in a public forum where ANYBODY can read it, you've almost MADE yourself have to return it. As odd as it sounds, I wouldn't be surprised if somebody sent CT an email and "told" on you. It's just like the poster a while back (or was it on AAAC?) where a question was asked about a great deal on an overcoat and the next day they were all sold out. The internet is a GREAT place for dishing out moral advice but not so great a place for putting one's money where one's mouth is because there is no accountability.

    So, since it is obviously a moral consideration to you, return it. Personally, I would never have even asked about it and would have played it as it lay.

    Doesn't your post kind of disprove its own premise?

    I would use any money I found in Kent's wallet to hire an illegal to mow my lawn. [​IMG]

    All that I meant was that when you ask a question like the original post on a public forum, the responses and that question are seen by everybody. So, the fact that others are going to see our responses changes what we might really say or do in real life, when they wouldn't see it. I think many of us, regardless of what we'd REALLY do, would be hesitant to say to this poster, "Hell, no, keep that money and then call CT and try to take more!"

    You guys are all very noble. I would keep the money. CT has also kind of screwed me over several times. A few weeks before the sale, I ordered a pair of shoes and it would not go through. I kept calling them and fixed everything they asked for (mismatching shipping/billing address, although it let me enter two different ones on the order form). After 3-4 calls and "yes it will work" responses from the people, my order was canceled and that was that.

    I then ordered during the sale and they had the same problem, this time with another credit card (a friend's). We ended up just getting it sent to her billing address, which they did after a week or two of waiting in limbo. But, they charged me shipping. So it was like 183 something for 2 pairs of shoes. They were very rude on the phone and said that we got lucky with the 100$ off which was not supposed to happen, and they would be happy to add 100$ to the bill and give me free shipping. Nice guys.
